Kyra's MOB for Sarah's Home and Covered
Choosing the Gift of Giving to Help Survivors of Trafficking
$185 by 14 people
My One Birthday
We are planning to gather to give all of the gifts that our supporters asked for as holiday gifts to Sarah's Home and Covered Colorado. In addition, these two incredible organizations will have representatives with some inspirational words, educational material and time to answer any questions. The BEST part of asking for the gift of giving is when you give the gift. You won't want to miss this event. Need a reminder on what gifts we are planning to ask for? - Gift cards! Gift cards of $20-$40 denominations for fast food, clothing stores, grocery stores, movies, bowling, etc. Kids, teens, etc - this may be the easiest gift for you to ask for to then bring to the event to donate. - Amazon wish list! You can order from the Amazon wish list and either have it shipped directly to you and bring the gift to the event or have it shipped to Kyra and we will bring all received gifts with us to the event. - Bring moolah with you to the event for a tax-deductible donation. We will take 100% of donations received at this event and turn them around into needed items for these organizations. CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS EVENT!! It's going to be such a celebration of giving, of hard working people who want to make a change for this world and of inspirational stories of bravery and rescue! Get your FREE ticket today. Light appetizers will be served compliments of My One Birthday. A lunch menu is available for self-pay ordering and the food at Parkway is SO good!

Using gifts from my 16th birthday and choosing to also ask for gifts for giving this Christmas, I have chosen to support two organizations that are making an incredible difference supporting those who have been rescued from the human trafficking epidemic - Sarah's Home and Covered Colorado. A family friend innocently fell into this life and both of these organizations stepped up to help save her. Literally they have saved her and are now helping her to rebuild her life.
Here are some details about the organizations and what your donations will be used for:
Sarah's Home is a faith-based residential home on the front range of Colorado for girls 12 to 18 who have been rescued from sex trafficking. Sarah's Home offers healing of the mind, body and spirit along with education, restoration, and reintegration to equip each girl with the skills needed to thrive in society as a survivor, not a victim.
Donations will be used to purchase paper products for the home including toilet paper, paper towels, Kleenex, etc. All the previously donated Clorox wipes will also be given to Sarah's Home. In addition donations will purchase gift cards for grocery stores, clothing stores, activities and events that Sarah's Home provides for the young girls as something special.
Covered works with survivors over 18 years old, assisting them and their children with a chance to change their lives for the better. They offer a healthy community full of caring coaches that have been trained to help these survivors obtain jobs, re-learn life skills and empower them to break the bondage they've been held by for so long.
Donations received in November will be used to help purchase Christmas decorations for the families who are starting over. Donations will also be used to purchase bed sheets, coats, tennis shoes and vacuums. Covered has the ability to provide housing for up to ten survivors so they have quite a community to support.
As you can see, the needs are great. I always knew that this problem existed because my mom keeps me aware but I honestly didn't realize what an issue it actually is here... right in the beautiful state I love. I am so moved not only to help these organizations because of what they have done for our friend but also to partner with them to educate and create awareness. While these organizations are doing important work to heal, I want to help it end!
